That is a ridiculously poorly-written story that is difficult to read.

Obviously this assassin knew his intended target. He was in and out in a split second...of the guys head.

Reminds me of the story of the son of a friend of my father. (Phew, what a long walk) I'm saying that maybe this guy crossed the Mexican Mafia.

Albuquerque Tribune:

Sergio Tena seemed nervous and kept walking in and out of his Rio Rancho garage while the two men waited inside for what they hoped would be a quick deal for methamphetamines, according to the one of those two men who is still alive.

The three, dealer and buyers, smoked a bowl of marijuana together. It was cold in the garage, and Carl Busbee, 27 years old and known to his friends as "Joey," told Tena to hurry up and make the deal. Tena left the garage for a few minutes.

According to the witness account, which is contained in an arrest warrant, Tena walked back into the garage about 9 p.m. on Nov. 27, called Busbee an obscenity and shot him once in the back with a silencer-equipped handgun.

Busbee fell to the floor, gasping and "asking for help," the witness told police.

"Sergio stood by Carl and looked at him for about one minute and then told (the witness) to turn around and face the wall," the warrant states. "As (the witness) faced the wall he heard another gunshot. He turned to see Sergio aiming the gun at Carl as (Carl) lay on the floor."

Busbee's body was found by police seven days later at the bottom of a hole behind a vacant Rio Rancho mobile home.

Tena, 46, and Anna Sigala, who police say is his wife or girlfriend, have been arrested and charged in connection with Busbee's death.

Witnesses have told police Busbee was killed on orders from the "Mexican mafia" over a $30,000 drug debt.

Rio Rancho Department of Public Safety spokesman John Francis said police are still investigating that claim.

According to arrest warrants filed in district court Tuesday, the witness to the killing told police he was duct taped to a chair while Tena and Sigala cleaned Busbee's blood from the garage floor using kitty litter, hydrogen peroxide and rags. The couple then rolled Busbee's body in a tarp and loaded it into Busbee's truck.

The witness told police he was forced to spend the night at Tena's house, 401 First St. in Rio Rancho. At dawn, he was awoken and told he would help get rid of the body.

The witness, whose account of the killing led police to Busbee's body, is not being identified because police say he could face retaliation.

He told police that he and Tena drove to a lot near Northern and Rainbow Boulevards. The lot contained a vacant mobile home and an already-dug, 12-foot-deep hole where they buried Busbee.

When police arrived a week later, they found several deep holes at the property, Francis said. It's not clear why they were there.

After burying the body, Tena drove the witness in Busbee's truck toward somewhere east of Gallup, where Tena met a green Nissan pickup and talked briefly with the driver.

Tena then drove to a residence and ordered the witness to strip the truck of valuables. They continued into Gallup, where they abandoned Busbee's truck in a strip mall parking lot and were picked up by the green truck Tena had met earlier, according to the warrant.

Police don't know who was driving the green Nissan, Francis said.

Busbee was first reported missing Dec. 2. That day, Busbee's father told police he received a visit from a woman who gave him his son's credit cards and contractor's license and told him she was "sorry."

Tena and Sigala both face kidnapping, evidence tampering and several conspiracy charges. Tena is also charged with murder.

I thought the very definition of 'assassin' implied there must be reasons, otherwise 'killer' or 'attacker' would be more accurate.

He got in a scrap with a bodyguard for R&B star Usher at a Las Vegas concert in 2004 - accusing the bodyguard of giving him a wedgie so severe that he bled. "That was one of the more creative descriptions of getting thrown out of a place I have ever heard," the bodyguard, Elijah Shaw, said Monday night. Woodard served time on a battery rap.

Well at least he will not be teased now with names like ... The Butthurt Bandit.

I'll be sure to ask the victims in Aurora, Columbine, etc. about their crimes. Or does this philosophy only apply to black people? Maybe we can call up Trayvon and ask him.

This was quite obviously a hit - it bears very little resemblance to any of the cases you mentioned.
Certainly could be a Successful and Attractive Italian-American Type Problem as well, however.

Oh, I agree that the circumstances are quite sketchy. I was objecting to the use of a veiled racial slur to insinuate that it was the reason for those circumstances.

I'm just sort of amazed at the movie-like details of what went down. Apparently shiat like this actually happens where the murderer just coolly gets into his car and drives away.

Didn't really read TFA but an article I saw yesterday said that the getaway car actually stopped at a light as they pulled away, waited for it to change and went on their merry way.

Saw a video where he got out of the car, puts on his hoodie, and turns away from the camera. was the random, or did he know that the camera was there?
He got out of the passenger side, btw.

time to outlaw hoodies. he may have been identified if it wasn't for that.

The shooter was described as a tall, white, bald fellow with a curious tattoo on the back of his neck. The same man is wanted in connection with the mysterious day-time death of a state witness that perished under the watchful eye of several FBI agents. He is also listed as a person of interest in the murder of a Saudi business man at a luxury Las Vegas hotel...

bad reporting.

suites are $850. Rooms could be $300.

doubtful. The attacker didn't accidently fall off a nearby building, or end up climbing a lamppost when he tried to run away.

It just goes to show how easy it is to off someone if everything works out.

I'm surprised there was no traffic - and no street cameras recording license plates. I thought those were deployed in NYC?
